Ok guys...

How do I log on as a valid user to a network using XP? I've done the first setup when received the new notebook.
In the server, that user account has been created.
I'm not so familiar with XP. Also, I want to install a printer that is shared on another PC running W2K but can only see the PC but not the printer. Is it bcos of different OS?

Regards.

Ok..one more thing.

The notebook is able to connect to the network but unable to access certain folders eventhough the proper permissions have been granted. How is the laptop able to connect to the network without providing identification such as user name and password?

YOu can't logon to a domain with Home edition, it must be pro
as for the printer, what OS is the machne it is attached to? and did you share the printer?
connecting to a shared printer in xp is just like all the other m$ os's, add printer, network, browse click on the plus next to the machine that has the printer and then select the printer

try unsharing and then resharing the printer
IOs the w2k the server for the domain?
enable the guest account, and give it permissions to the printer
